The G2380 fluid head, is ideally suited to both lightweight ENG and home video camcorders, enabling professional, smooth panning and solid locking. The G2380 will also work well with long telephoto lenses for still photography following a moving subject, making it easier to achieve one of the most exciting photographic effects, with the subject sharp against a blurred, streaked background.
The fluid effect video head uses friction to smooth the movements, adjustable on both the pan and the tilt planes to suit the weight of the camera. Each of the movements can also be locked solid by simply tightening the knob in the center of the friction control.
The design of the head allows it to be set up for either left or right handed operation. It includes a dual direction, quick release plate to assist in easy fixing of the camera from the front or rear with a secondary safety catch to protect your camera.
- Innovative Design
- The innovative design of the G2380 is much more than cosmetic. It has been painstakingly developed to eliminate all unnecessary weight, while maintaining the strength, long-lasting durability, and extraordinary precision for which Gitzo heads have become famous.
- Pan and Tilt Control
- Provides exceptionally smooth pans and tilts. Friction for both pan and tilt planes is fully adjustable to perfectly match the weight of your camera. Tightening a convenient knob in the center of the friction control can also independently lock both movements.
- Quick Release Plate
- A sliding quick-release plate allows the camera to be easily mounted and balanced from either the front or the rear, and a built-in secondary safety catch protects the camera from accidentally sliding off the head.
